Gordo offers starvation rations to the faithful:
Despite all the vitriol thrown at him by the hostile media over the past weeks this remains the case, more than it ever was for Blair and more than it ever will be for David Cameron. Brown is still the politician most likely to deliver the fruits of those principles, even after the "election that never was". That is why he retains the support of his party. As he told a still loyal, if sorely tested, PLP, their great movement is still "for the many not the few" and the Conservative Party is not. This doughty statement of values has just enough life left in it to rally the troops.I remember when “for the many and not the few” was an idiot Blairite soundbite. But now it’s a doughty statement of values.
It might be a marker of sorts. The polls seem to show that the voters who went back to Labour from the Lib Dems after Blair left have gone back again. Back to the old flat cap for a bit then.
